The Spring-Ford Educational Foundation 5K benefits the Senior Impact Awards: Beginning with the Class of 2006, Spring-Ford Area School District has been honoring individuals nominated by graduating seniors, who have been instrumental in making an impact on their educational experience. This individual may be anyone who is presently or was previously (retired) associated with the Spring-Ford Area School District in any capacity. An award dinner is hosted each Spring for all the nominees and the seniors who nominate them to celebrate how this individual has impacted his/her life while in the Spring-Ford Area School District.
THE WASHINGTON POST SELECTS SPRING-FORD AREA SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL AS ONE OF “AMERICA’S MOST CHALLENGING HIGH SCHOOLS”
Spring-Ford Area High School (SFAHS) students and staff continue to receive national recognition for outstanding work, most recently as the school made The Washington Post’s 2015 list of America’s Most Challenging High Schools.
The Washington Post ranks schools through an index formula that’s a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement (AP) exams and/or International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of 1.000 means the school had as many tests as graduates. SFAHS has seen an increase in the number of AP exams that students elect to participate in, making their ratio 1.250 in 2015.
Congratulations to our students and staff!
